Hey cardmaking friends. Today I’m sharing the Spellbinders Hand Stitched Greeting Card. This is created with the December Large Die of the Month Kit from Spellbinders.
This month there are three layered panels to cut. The base layer that you stitch on, the middle outline layer which I did in Gold and the top outline layer done in pink.
These dies are a card makers dream. They easily and quickly cut beautiful card fronts for you. Stitched or unstitched, they are stunning.
How to create the Spellbinders Hand Stitched Greeting Card:
Each of these panels measures 2-3/4 x 4-1/2 inches so you can make one for the center of an A2 card. Or, you can make two of them, and create a gate fold opening card held closed with a pretty belly band as I’m sharing today.
The dies do a beautiful job of die cutting especially the one with all the stitched holes. I hardly had to poke any of them out. The stitching does take a bit, but I find it super relaxing. I put on a movie and just sit and stitch, it is so enjoyable.
Cut and Stitch the Panels:
Die cut the panels and use pink embroidery threat to stitch them.
Use the Bearly Art Glue to attach the top two layers and place something heavy on them to dry.
Meanwhile, cut your card base at 4-1/4 x 11. Score the center at 5-1/2 and score each end at 2-3/4.
Fold the two ends to the center and then attached a stitched panel to each side.
Create the Belly Band for the hand stitched greeting card:
Use the smallest of the Fluted Classics Squares and die cut it in Pink Sand.
Next, use the smallest outline die to die cut the gold square and inlay it to the above.
Cut a 3/4″ x 11 strip of the Pink Sand card stock and wrap it around the card – it will not meet in the center at the front, there will be a small gap.
Secure the Fluted Classics Square over the belly band and secure with a foam square on either side. This creates the closure for the belly band
PS – Don’t make it too tight, you want to be able to slide it up and down.
Finally, gold foil a happy birthday sentiment using Yana’s Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil set.
